Materia Medica Webinars

Essential Elements of 
50 Families / Groups of Remedies


Soon to begin our third year...  
with a new reduced price!!

The first two years of Essential Elements were offered for $700 per year. By drastically reducing the price - to $400 - we hope that more colleagues will be able to take advantage of these wonderful webinars. These are two hour lectures given once per month for 10 months of the year - with time after for questions. Valuable handouts include Massimo's repertory additions for the remedies covered, Concept Graphs, and cases (if the English translation is available).  

Don't delay - email Betty at to arrange for payment through PayPal.
Join us as we continue the series, beginning January 15.  All webinars run from 12 - 2:00 New York time.

These webinars will be held once per month for 10 months of the year.   Each webinar, lasting 2 - 2.5 hours, will focus on the precise issues of the group and significant specifics about some of the individual remedies. 50 sessions have been planned. Additionally - two question / answer sessions will be scheduled - 30 hours of lecture - $400

Hosted by: The New England Homeopathic Academy

These lectures are packed with information - too much to absorb the first time through. The lecture begins with an overview of the family, continuing with differentiating details of the individual remedies. Even the polycrests you think you know so well have new information. The sessions are recorded and available for one year.  

Hear what others have said:

For me, this course has been "The Best of Massimo".  Hearing directly from him what he has observed about the particular kind of suffering that occurs in each remedy state he presents gives me valuable tools for studying not only those remedies, but others also, applying the kinds of observations he demonstrates.  It helps to make sense of the dozens and dozens of symptoms that one comes across in case taking, in reading materia medica, in reading provings.  The depth of Massimo's approach means it keeps informing me long after each session is over.

Thank you so much for organizing these great Webinars! You have made it so simple for me to register with NEHA, follow instructions on how to log on to WebEx, and access communications and additional materials, which were distributed like clockwork prior to each event. This requires a lot of work and I really appreciate your efforts.
As for the Webinars, I enjoyed all of them. Massimo is absolutely "brillante"! He is so generous with his knowledge. His insights, paired with the manner in which he explains the picture of the remedies and related families in so much details, make it easier to understand the labyrinth of all these deep remedy layers. All this information comes alive when he talks about the characteristics of a specific family or remedy supported by his clinical experience.
I feel fortunate to take part in this group and I look forward to the next series of Webinars in the year 2013.

Attendance at Mangialavori's webinars this year was a wonderful experience. The feeling is one of deep gratitude for the honour of learning with one of the most brilliant thinkers who knows how to transmit what is more evolved in Homoeopathy today. Though I can not participate at the time of live transmissions, the online recordings have great quality and we have the comfort to access it at any time during the study periods. The master's didactic  follows the maxim of Kent ("from the general to the particular"). We have in the first moments an overview of the fundamental themes of families and following a deepening in some specific drugs.  So it is not just the great lesson of materia medica and clinical experience, but a substantial increase in our possibility of differential diagnosis.
Thank you master Massimo Mangialavori!
Patients of Homeopathy around the world thank you!
Best wishes!

About the webinars
I began teaching more than 25 years ago because I wanted to share my clinical experience.  Many colleagues have not had the opportunity to participate in these meetings or have only fragmented information gathered from inaccurate, recirculated notes of recent seminars.  I have received numerous requests for a review and summary of the material I have presented over the years. 

I have never been pleased or comfortable with “cookbook” synopses of materia medica: it is not really my style, nor in my ability.  I generally spend on average 4-5 days focusing on one homeopathic family in my seminars.  This webinar provides a short synopsis of the essential elements of the particular family / group discussed with a differential of a few remedies within the group. 


It should be emphasized that this program is the result of more than 25 years of work, study, seminars and courses. The ideas and insights have come from clinical trials, late night discussions with Gianni Marotta, collaboration with several other colleagues, all of which give rise to extensive information that will be challenging to summarize in a few words. I wish to state unequivocally that I do not consider these webinars to be a replacement for the in-depth knowledge to be gained from seminars, supervision or any other experience between people. We will continue our “live” seminars in the Boston area and in Europe as in the past for an even deeper exploration of these concepts, themes, families and remedies.

My main goal is to provide a rough idea, synthetic as well defined, of each group of substances characterized by specifically outlining what the individual remedies treat: both clinically as well as on the basis of fundamental themes. If clinical cases are currently available or have been published, prior to each meeting and at least one week in advance, I will send you the clinical material that will enable you to study something about the topic we will discuss.  The material I send is copy-right protected and can not be used for anything else, or released without my specific consent.

First session is free!! 
Surely many of you come from different work and learning experiences and may be uncomfortable with concepts that you are not familiar with, or with aspects of my methodology that are not shared by other schools of thought.  The first session therefore will be offered for free and will be a brief introduction and clarification of epistemological and methodological problems that are the foundation of the Method of Complexity in Homeopathy. This is my approach to the study of remedies and what I am most interested in concerning the relationship with the patient. This free session also gives you an opportunity to determine if the technology will work for you. (Space is limited; those that have paid for their course will come first.)

How it will work
The program will be transmitted via Webex (; you will need to check to be sure your computer is compatible with Webex.    

Each session will last 2 to 2.5 hours. The first two hours will consist of lecture with the last 30 minutes open to questions. The program is scheduled to take place over a few years, once per month for 10 sessions per year, leaving July and August free. There will be two practice sessions, to be sure you are familiar with the technology, and one free session in December to be sure you are satisfied with the content. The first year will begin in January 2012.  

Payment will be expected in full before January. If we don't have your payment, then you will be unable to attend. After January, for those joining late, full payment is expected and you will have access to the recordings. Please, only one person attending per tuition paid; if you would like to attend in a group setting, each person should pay a tuition. The tuition is not reimbursable nor transferable to another person. On occasion, something unexpected might come up that will force me to re-schedule our time. Last year the Internet went out once. If something like this happens, the session will be rescheduled and recorded so everyone has access.
